New clip from The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty arrives online

In The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, Ben Stiller's eponymous hero dreams of life filled with adventure. Unfortunately, sometimes adventure comes with a side order of terror, sharp teeth and a chance of freezing to death, especially when one is dropped into icy shark infested waters.

A remake of the classic 1947 film (itself an adaption of a short story by James Thurber), the film sees Stiller direct himself as the titular Mitty, a meek employee at Life Magazine who is facing redundancy as the magazine shuts down. Instead of living in a fantasy world as normal, he's sent on a real adventure to find a key picture for the magazine's final issue, taking him – as you can see in this clip – quite a long way out of his comfort zone.

The film also stars Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) as the object of Mitty's tentative affections, Shirley MacLaine (In Her Shoes) as his mother, Kathryn Hahn (Wanderlust) as his sister and Adam Scott (Step Brothers) as his boss.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty is out on 26 December.
